LeCastleVania and FUKKK OFFF are going to be playing at the same upcoming event in San Francisco. This is either a disastrous plot of bone crushing vibrations, or a night of aching jaws, sore feet, and FUN. It seems as if the producers of this event want to make people come out with bloody gums and teeth missing. Honestly though, this is a beautiful collaboration of talent, so I don’t think people will mind any amount of damage their body takes from such a lineup. Realboy doesn’t hurt either… So stoked to see them perform. The show is being ran by 2 companies; Dionysus and Our House Records. Dionysus doesn’t have a site, and is pretty lowkey, but Our House Records does, so be sure to check it out.

He’s a Scenester who pumps out frequent solid remixes, and his sets attract massive crowds that pull in one furious night. Beware, this show is 21 plus. This was requested by LeCastleVania purely because his crowds tend to be much older, love to get drunk, and love to be rambunctious. His sets pop brains, so come to Day One well equipped..
Pretty ironic that I used the phrase, “pop your brain,” for LeCastleVania, considering FUKKK OFFF has a track titled, Brain Rock. This guys name really encompasses his attitude on everything. He’s a rude mother fucker, and I love it. Hard music is meant to tear at its listeners. Everything about him as an artist does it well.

Now, I have never been a fan of negative press. I have never been a fan of blogs full of overly-negative people, that feed off someone’s failures because that’s the only thing that makes them feel better about themselves. So I’m going to try to be as unbiased as possible on this one, and, most importantly try not to offend any of you… “little monsters”.
Yesterday, Lady Gaga released the video of her latest single “Born This Way” off her upcoming, same-titled album under Interscope Records. The video starts off with a vintage feel, typical of the disco-pop era, with a pink neon triangle and, for some reason, a unicorn that, later on proves to have nothing at all to do with the video itself. I mean, I know she might like unicorns, we all love unicorns, but i don’t think that means you can just slap unicorns here and there in your productions. The actual intro, which includes narration by Gaga itself, pictures a world similar to a beehive in open space, where she is the queen and is constantly giving birth to gooey over sized eggs that will later on hatch into clones of the (drag) queen herself. Now, don’t get me wrong, the photography and effects in the intro are outstanding, great cuts and image play. However, seeing someone shove their hand into Gaga’s vagina and extract some miscellaneous egg the size of five fucking pineapples out of it is not really my forte, even when put in a beautifully artistic way. The video then cuts to the song itself where the singer does the usual pop group dance thing that, for some reason, turns out to be an awful sight. Even Britney Spears, pregnant with her child, could not have executed in such an uncoordinated, amateurish way. From that point on the video forms a pattern of incompetence. The whole video is pretty much a combination of things such as the movies “Alien”, “Sin City” , Christina Aguilera’s “Dirty” video, too bad these things have very, very little to do with each other, if not, nothing. Oh, and in regards to the song, I really hope Madonna doesn’t sue her. Well enough with the talk, here is the video, see for yourself:
Since we’re wrapping up Black History month…
Dan Deacon, the master of weird but good music. While he’s far from the most conventional music producer, he is still one of the great innovators of electronic genre. His music is, putting it lightly, pretty absurd, which is foreshadowed in album titles such as “Green Cobra is Awesome Vs The Sun” and “Spiderman of the Rings”. All of his work really has a Tim & Eric feel to it, which is pretty uncommon for, well, everything. For example, take a look at his song “Crystal Cat” from his “Spiderman of the Rings” album:
Yea, he’s kind of hipster-bait, but he is also famed as one of the best performance artists around. When playing a solo show he’ll preform at crowd level within the audience. He’s also responsible for a great viral video back from 2006. You might have missed it, so here it is:
There are a bunch of theories behind that video, although the fan favorite seems to involve Dan, his friend, and some acid. Mr. Deacon persistently claims that this false, even going as far as to say that he hasn’t tried acid. I don’t know how much truth is behind that though, because Dan definitely looks like a guy that’s taken at least a couple of hits.
A final note on Deacon’s awesomeness: A little over a month ago he was commissioned to score Francis Ford Coppola’s next film, Twixt Now and Sunrise. If you don’t know who Coppola is, he’s responsible for The Godfather series as well as Apocalypse Now. The movie is supposed to be a “thriller with overtones of horror” starring Val Kilmer (what the fuck?) and according to a recent interview with Coppola, it’s based on an “alcohol induced dream he had in Turkey.” The movie is scheduled to come out later this year, and I know that at least I’m going to see it.
Let me leave you with one more classic by Deacon, appropriately titled “Paddling Ghost”:
Born and raised in Ukraine, Alexander Alekseenko kills time by taking photos of young people that live in the same small town as him. He admitted multiple times that he hates his surroundings and therefore had to come up with little stories and scenarios that he can take pictures of. Enjoy.

So if you know anything about electronic music than you’re aware that Ed Banger Records is a godsend. Seriously, there is not a single artist on that label that does not melt faces on a regular basis. One of the larger names on the Ed Banger roster, SebastiAn, just released some new noise plus a video to accompany it. This has to be one of my favorite videos to date, plus the song is terrific. It’s an excellent example of SebastiAn’s ability to meld genres. Be warned, this video is not safe for work, not safe for home; it’s really just not a safe video. I mean, it was released today and vimeo already took it down. Watch it now, before youtube follows suit. Oh, and all you epileptics might want to steer clear as well. The song’s name is “Total”:
Try going through it and pausing at random points. There is not a single picture in there that isn’t entertaining.
Thank you, SebastiAn.
EDIT: Well, as I’m sure you can tell, you’re too late. Youtube took the video down. We’re just gonna have to wait for the clean version…
2nd Edit: Daily Motion just got it up. Sorry for the ad at the beginning.
